David Ospina’s Arsenal career could be over after just one season, if reports from Turkey are to be believed.
According to Haberturck.com, the Colombian stopper is set for a move to Fenerbahce for a fee in the region of €5.5 million.
It’s claimed that a deal with Arsenal has been struck and that final negotiations with the player will take place when he returns from international duty at the Copa America.
The 26-year-old moved to the Emirates last summer from French side Nice as a replacement for Lukasz Fabianski, eventually usurping Wojciech Szczesny to end the season as Arsene Wenger’s first choice between the sticks.
During his 18 Premier League appearances Ospina racked up some impressive stats, including the highest save percentage, 80.7%, and the highest win ratio, 72.22%, for any keeper in the division.
It seems somewhat odd that we’d want to let him go, however, with Szczesny committing himself to the Gunners and still a long-term prospect and Petr Cech’s move from Chelsea looking more and more likely it appears he’s the most likely candidate to make way.
That being said, Arseblog News is not yet completely convinced by this particular rumour…the Turkish press have a history of printing nonsense. With that in mind it’s a solid 6 on the poo-ometer scale.
